On Sarah’s first visit to see her foster mother, Mim, in Brockburn General Hospital, she is sucked into a world that isn’t what it should be. 

If you think you’re safe in a hospital, think again. 

The prologue from the unknown killer’s perspective sets the tension and suspense as he plans how he’s going to murder his dinner companion.

Her knee was damaged so badly she needed a replacement. Arriving at the hospital Sarah finds, to her immense relief, Mim is almost back to her usual bright self and more than ready to go home.  Continue reading

In today’s online shopping age, readers often base their buying decisions from small postage stamp size book covers (Thumb-nails), a quick glance at the book description and the review. How much time do they really spend making that buying decision?
